'In this biography, Paul Douglas Dickson argues that the long and controversial career of General H.D.G. Crerar can best be understood in terms of the general's great personal ambition and his sense that military service was the supreme form of civic duty. The primary research from both Canadian and British archives is formidable and carefully managed by the author. A Thoroughly Canadian General is a significant contribution to the field of Canadian military history, and also to international studies of the Second World War, particularly operational command of the western Allied forces.' -Roger Sarty, Department of History, Wilfrid Laurier UniversityDickson, Paul Douglas is the author of 'A Thoroughly Canadian General', published 2007 under ISBN 9780802008022 and ISBN 080200802X.
